Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
I am sorry to hear what happened to your puppy. My name is***** am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
It is a back leg he is limping on? And he can stand up with his front paws on a chair, and weight on both hind legs?
I always worry about a broken bone when a dog won't put any weight on the leg, but it is good if he stands on it when he is on two legs. However, the only way to be sure he did not break or dislocate anything is an Xray.
Is there any swelling on any part of that leg?
It probably would be best to have him checked. Until then, you could try giving him aspirin to see if that helps him to walk on it better. How much does he weigh? You can give 1 low dose or baby aspirin per 15 to 20 pounds of body weight, twice daily, with some food. If he vomits, do not give aspirin again. Do not give any ibuprofen or Aleve or anything but baby aspirin.
Let me know what else I can answer or help with.
